A Busy October for MWC

This past October, the Muskrat Watershed Council completed three projects with the assistance of the Community Services Recovery Fund.

The Government of Canada delivered the Community Services Recovery Fund through three National Funders – Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way Centraide Canada. The National Funders distributed funding to eligible community service organizations, including charities, non-profits, and Indigenous governing bodies, providing services in communities across Canada.

On October 13th Level 3 and Level 1 Environmental Technician students from Algonquin College's Waterfront Campus constructed 10 turtle nesting boxes for the Muskrat Watershed Council.
